    Hi

    I want to give a laptop the chance to use the data connection of my phone.

    But when I start Wifi connection again, the hotspot is set off. Turning on the hotspot makes the wifi connection to stop ...

    I turned off a lot of permissions and deinstalled or deactivated some apps also.

    What do I need to make it work.

    I would be happy about competent and clear help.

    Sincerely
    Klaus

    That's normal, whenever you turn on hotspot, your phone's wifi will get disabled. You could turn on your mobile data and start the hotspot so that your laptop can use your phone's data connection.
